With Exercise.com, you will find a true all-in-one software options that can be used by managers, staff, employees, clients, and members. The features are endless to grow and manage your fitness business.

Developing an easy intake system with my apps and ways to scale the delivery of workouts has been huge. Working with 20-30 individuals who each have specific goals and restrictions can be challenging, but your platform makes it easy to organize everyone’s programs and put a plan together that will get them the best results possible.

We went live with our Fitness Business Management software at 4 locations. Everything is working great. The import and export are easy and the guys are really liking the look and convenience of the platform. From both my side and the user side the platform has exceeded our expectations.

The simple, effective tools help expand and simplify my coaching process.
Dean Somerset 
Before I came across Exercise.com, the process I used to try and communicate a program with an athlete long distance was extremely cumbersome. Those days are long gone, and I look forward to providing professional, clean, organized, and effective programs to clients for years to come.
Chip Gosewich PMR Performance
The Exercise.com team is amazing, and their all-in-one software is more than we ever expected! All of this is made possible by a high-quality team.
Exercise.com makes my life easier by providing an all-in-one solution and the opportunity to help those who otherwise would never have access to my programming!
Tony Gentilcore Founder, Core Online

Client/Class Scheduling

Booksy is geared toward professionals that use appointments for services like beauty services, health professionals, massage, and others. Booksy provides these professionals with an option to set up availability for clients to be able to book and manage appointments.

Clients can use the mobile app or Booksy websites to search for professionals near them or professionals they have used in the past. Booksy also automatically sends reminders to the clients once the appointments are confirmed. Currently, there is no waiting list option with Booksy.

Exercise.com also offers similar options for scheduling and calendars, like booking and managing appointments and services. You can also set up automatic reminders and notifications via email, text, or from the mobile app.

Gym/Facility Management

Booksy allows professionals to run reports on business activity, booking statistics, individual staff performance, sales revenue, and client payment history.

Exercise.com allows you to customize the reports you need. You can also set up staff roles and permissions to give employees the access they need on a daily basis.

Client Automation

Exercise.com allows for automated delivery of any type of file to your clients. You can send workout files, videos, nutrition plans, assessment files, and more. Let’s say you have a stay-at-home mom who wants to work out in her home gym during naptime. You can send workouts, videos, and her nutrition plan all via the mobile app. It’s a win-win for both of you!

. Here are a few of the automation features that Exercise.com’s software provides:

  • Automatic Emails and Texts/Other Automatic Features
  • Highlight Exercise.com
  • Automate Workout Delivery
  • Automate Resource Delivery
  • Automate Assessment Delivery

Dedicated Account Manager

Every Exercise.com client has a dedicated account manager that acts as their main point of contact for any and all software-related needs.

Customized Software

The only customization options within the Booksy app are the ability to add photos, the ability to connect to social media accounts, and the addition of your contact information. There are no options to customize text, logos, or branding.

In comparison, Exercise.com offers fully customizable and branded mobile apps for our clients and can match colors, logos, and verbiage across platforms for a consistent look with websites, dashboards, and mobile apps. We also offer custom dev tools for clients.

Exercisers can view schedules, book classes, view workouts, track or highlight workouts, view and enter challenges, monitor progress toward goals, and more. Staff and trainers can also use the app to create, plan, and deliver workouts, add exercises or notes, track progress, engage with clients, automate reminders and notifications, and more.

All my clients are required to use my online training. When training with me personally face-to-face, they have my app. They train with me—let’s say two days—and then they have the app for one. So they’re constantly working out on their own or required to utilize the app logging so that I can now check on them
Ashton Roberts AR Performance Training
For a while now, we have been looking for a great way to provide an all-encompassing experience for basketball players. The customization features of the web platform and custom-branded apps have allowed us to do that, creating the perfect marriage between our expert content and all of the really cool features that help separate us from the rest of the competition.
Kyle Ohman Basketball HQ
Exercise.com has brought a whole new element to my programming. I am super jealous of my brand and make quite a few demands, um, suggestions for the app. They are always eager to work with me and go above and beyond to deliver. Truly a gold medal team!

Dean Somerset 
Exercise.com has allowed a lot of flexibility with integration, so I can better connect with my customers. They developed a way to integrate with my CMR so I can send email sequences after purchasing, and they also created an upsell option on the sales page that offers exclusive products to customers.
Kellie Davis 
The Exercise.com team is amazing, and their all-in-one software is more than we ever expected! All of this is made possible by a high-quality team.

Assessments

There are multiple reasons why assessments are useful. Personal trainers can use assessments to gather baseline information about a client in order to develop an effective fitness program tailored to their abilities and goals. They can also be used to categorize or compare exercise enthusiasts or athletes with others of the same age and sex by using criterion-referenced standards.

When assessments are repeated, trainers and clients can see their progress over time. For example, if a client completed 1.0 mile in a 12-minute run/walk for distance assessment the first attempt and then completed 1.15 miles after three months of a training program, that is a remarkable improvement.

Clients can also use assessments as a way to stay motivated toward reaching their health and fitness goals.

Additionally, there are so many different types of health and fitness assessments that can be used with clients and members to assess cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, or body composition. There are also assessments to test power, agility, stability, and balance.

With Exercise.com, the good news is there is no need for paper and pen assessments. The assessment results can easily be added to your client’s profile for you and the client to view electronically. If you have an intake or assessment form, you can easily share that with clients.

Performance & Measurement Reports

Assessments help develop a relationship and create a sense of loyalty between the trainer and client. Personal trainers can give appropriate feedback and instructions after reviewing assessment information and clients can use this to communicate their health and fitness goals with their trainer.

Nutrition

Booksy does not provide nutrition tracking capabilities.

Exercise.com, however, allows users to track nutrition intake, send notes and tips to clients regarding their clients’ meals, meal timing, and more.

Booksy Pricing

Pricing for Booksy starts at $29.99 per month. It is an additional $10 a month to add each additional staff member. Unlimited pricing with unlimited staff starts at $119.99 a month.

The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons

Booksy has features that are useful to many professionals, including hairstylists, makeup artists, massage therapists, or nail salons who only need scheduling, appointment management, payment processing options, and basic payment processing.

Personal trainers, gym managers, and other fitness professionals would need another system to use workout creation and delivery features, performance health assessment features, customization of mobile apps and websites, and robust e-commerce options, like selling personal training online. This is where Exercise.com provides all the features you need to grow and manage your fitness business.

One software is all you need for calendars and booking, workout creation and delivery, customized website and app, member management, administrative functions, e-commerce, and health performance assessments. Exercise.com gives you all of this for one price and one package.

Booksy Cons

Booksy does not contain any features for workout creation and delivery or performance health assessments. Personal trainers and fitness professionals would need another software option in order to use their features. Who wants to learn and use two different systems when one software could give you all of those options?
